        [Albany Cycle, comprising] Legs; Billy Phelan's Greatest Game; [and] Ironweed

      New York, 1983. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Three First Printings, all in highly collectible condition. 8vo's; 317, [1]; [12], 282; [12], 227, [1]pp. Legs (Coward, McCann & Geoghegan, 1975): Publisher's cream paper-covered boards and black cloth spine stamped gilt, with decorative end papers; in a pictorial dust jacket priced $8.95. Fine and apparently unread with one bumped tip; in a just about Fine jacket, the spine ends very lightly rubbed and creased. Billy Phelan (Viking Press, 1978): Publisher's grey cloth, the spine stamped silver; in a pictorial dust jacket priced $9.95. Fine and unread, the binding square and very tight; in a better than Near Fine jacket, the spine tips lightly rubbed, the back panel with several creases and short closed tears. Ironweed (Viking Press, 1983): First State, with "perceivced" for perceived on page 205, line 22; in a First Issue jacket with a blurb from Saul Bellow (Kennedy's mentor) on the front panel and no author's photo. Publisher's grey cloth spine lettered in silver and black paper-covered boards; in a pictorial dust jacket priced at $14.75. A Fine, unread copy, marred only by faint dust-spotting to the fore- and top edges; in a Fine, bright, unfaded jacket. Albany is the crucible where Kennedy's Irish immigrants-machine politicians and lowlifes, oucasts and swells, many members of the author's fictional Phelan family-have come to forge their version of the American dream. "Inevitable comparisons to James Joyce and his delineations of his native Dublin abound in discussions of Kennedy's work, and the American author's selective use of stream of consciousness and stylistic experimentation enhance the comparisons." (Literary Encyclopedia) The Albany Cycle's crowning achievement, following Legs and Billy Phelan's Greatest Game, is Ironweed, awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction and generally acknowledged as Kennedy's masterpiece. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Winter's Tale [Presentation Copy]

      San Diego: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, September 20, 1983. First Edition, First Printing.. Hardcover. About Fine/Very Good at least. 688 pp. Hardcover. Publisher's original wheat colored cloth over boards, silver lettering and decorations to spine and front cover. Presentation Copy. Inscribed and dated a full month prior to publication. "8/12/1983 To Ruth Rogers, Mark Helprin ". [Not a shred of proof, but seems likely to be American ex-pat to England, River Cafe chef and owner Ruth Rogers. Additionally, years later, this copy found it's way into the library of the well known collector Otis Skinner Blodgett with his personal bookplate, signed and dated by him [London, 2001], affixed to the front paste-down. Book Condition: Gently pushed spine ends, superficial scuff mark to spine, else fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Wear to the extremities, spine ends and tips show salt and pepper loss; top to bottom crease to front flap, small tear to rear fold at bottom edge with bits of loss. Fred Marcelino's great cover illustration bright and vibrant, as is Jerry Bauer's full page portrait of Helprin filling up the rear panel. A very solid copy, still bright crisp, for this title which mostly got read to pieces. In our humble opinion a real tour de force: magical realism meets Americana as a long love letter to the greatest city in the world. Rare presentation copy with delightful provenance.
